After a Bird Fell down
"A dead bird is gradually decomposing, and the seeds in its belly slowly germinate at the same time." Except for words and pictures, how can one tell such a short story? From the point of view of picture books and artist’s books, After a bird fell down focuses on the book's structural characteristics and logic. By combining characteristics of hole books and pop-up books, After a bird fell down adopts “volume of book pages” into its narrative. While reading, readers would find out the hole bigger and the sprout taller page by page. Via increase and decrease of its volume, After a bird fell down intends to make readers realize that time passing are not simply about reduction and death. Increase and birth are also what time passing brings.
